About the Program
Enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions. Reinforcing the values of collaboration, community, and caring for the world around us, projects will ignite the imaginations of your family members, whether they are 2 or 102!
October: Family Tapestries—In recognition of California Archaeology Month, design your very own tapestry that shares your family’s traditions and is inspired by ancient crafts.
November: “Notorious” Printmaking—Inspired by the themes of strength and courage in the exhibition Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, make a “notorious” print.
December: Cause-Worthy Collars—Check out RBG’s dissent collars in the Notorious RBG exhibition and then create wearable art that represents a cause you believe in.
“The Skirball [Cultural] Center’s exhibitions are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, so put the mojo to good use in the museum’s Family Art Studio. The bright, colorful space is marketed to kiddos, what with the low tables and a toddler-friendly play nook outfitted with books, toys, and beanbag chairs. Staff and volunteers offer as much or as little hand-holding as your future Picasso wants.”—“The Best Things to Do in LA in 2018,” Los Angeles magazine
